Buying in bulk is time saving and more economical for families who eat healthy every day. We fatten on high-qulity forages, then dry age for 14 days to produce Grass Fed 'n Pasture Finished Beef. This beef has a rosy-red color and produces wonderful, meaty, cooking aroma. When you pick up your beef, each piece is individually wrapped, labeled and quick frozen for your freezer.
At harvest, you will receive an invoice based on the weight of an actual animal. The cost is $4.95/lb on the hanging weight of the animal, plus the processing costs. The total price per quarter will be in the range of $650 to $850. We are happy to take your credit card as payment, however we will charge a 3% processing fee on the balance after the deposit. There is no processing fee for the deposit
Each quarter will take about 3-4 cu ft of freezer space
